Cain is a possible player character in Fallout: Brotherhood of Steel.

Background

As a mercenary, Cain is a ghoul through and through. Stooped, skeletal, and bony, Cain is a real badass, the kind of guy that upon finding your burning body would roast desert rat over you rather than put you out. When his home was razed to the ground by the super mutants, Cain took it personally. In an attempt to seek vengeance upon the mutants, he sought out the Brotherhood of Steel and demanded entry. As a some-what isolationist and anti-mutant order, the Brotherhood was reluctant to grant him admission, but Cain's perseverance was fueled with a grim determination. He was finally given a test of initiation, a suicide mission that should he survive would allow him to become one of the first ghouls ever to join the ranks of the Brotherhood.[1][2][3]

Traits

With less strength than Cyrus and less speed than Nadia, Cain's ability to withstand the effects of radiation is what truly sets him apart. Once he has gained the Rad Child skill, He will actually heal himself when coming in contact with Radioactive Substances.[1]

Notes

Currently, Cain is the only playable ghoul in the entire Fallout series to date (if not counting the ghoul recruits in Fallout Tactics). This also makes him the only playable character with immunity to radiation, though in Fallout the player's radiation resistance can go to 100%.

Appearances

Cain appears only in Fallout: Brotherhood of Steel.

  3. Fallout: Brotherhood of Steel Official Strategy Guide p.4: "CAIN
    Cain is a Ghoul. He was once a man, but was severely disfigured by radiation poisoning. He became sickly thin, skeletal in appearance. And the changes were more than skin deep. Cain became a merciless, tough-as-nails mercenary, fighting for the highest bidder. But when an army of mutants destroyed his home, the only payment Cain would seek was vengeance. He approached the Brotherhood, but they were reticent to open their ranks to a Ghoul. Behind closed doors, the Brotherhood decided to send Cain on a suicide mission for the order. They figured he would never succeed. But within Cain beats the heart of a killer, and that's just the kind of man this mission calls for."
    "Strengths: With less strength than Cyrus and less speed than Nadia, Cain's ability to withstand the effects of radiation is what truly sets him apart. Whereas the other two must avoid the toxic effects of radioactive substances,Cain will actually heal himself by coming into contact with it."
    "Weaknesses: Cain is not as strong as Cyrus, nor is he as fast as Nadia."
